Indus was originally an engineering college but it has introduced many other courses after becoming University in 2012. For Amdavadis, Indus University is a good option as it is a little far from the city and the crowd that comes is generally the rich one. You can see the parking lot with a lot of luxury cars. The transportation is poor as there are not many bus services and an auto or taxi will cost you 200-300 daily. The hostel is there but Amdavadis are not allowed. If you are from another city which hardly was, you can apply for the hostel. The construction was as the Bhanwar building is getting expanded. The University is neat and clean and one gets good vibes at the University. It may be not as strict as Nirma University or LJ University but 60% attendance is required to appear for the exams. No recommendations work there and hence one has to be careful about that. Not just infrastructure but other criteria of the college which I will be mentioning in the review have higher pros. I can’t comment on each department but the BBA department was quite good.
12th marks with 60% and above is enough. Some students below that percentage were also given admissions but that doesn’t mean its open for all. The seats are limited and the 1st semester started in August and was quite short. From the 3rd semester onwards it begins in July and the final exams are concluded before Christmas. The University reopens after Makar Sakranti so we had a good break between the new semesters. The attendance part is already mentioned and if one is regular in the college, he/she will never have any issue attending lectures. The studies were interesting mostly because it wasn’t as tough. The subjects were relatively new but manageable because the teachers were excellent. If one has over 4 backlogs after the 4th semester they will have to repeat the year and clear those backlogs.
It all comes to the equation because for some the faculty were the worst ever while for some they were generous. For me, they were good because one has to build camaraderie with their teachers while studying. Questioning them or their thoughts will not do any good to anyone. From the 3rd semester, industrial visits at least 4 to 5 times were possible because of the faculty. They had their sources which they used to good effect so that we have enough experience after getting the degrees.
Sorry, but there weren’t any. For our department there were none but the University has a placement cell that promises more but couldn’t provide placement to a single student. BBA students are not in demand and rather than struggling to find a job or immediately start sharing the office with my father, I decided to continue my studies. This was the common perception at the campus as many of us continued with further studies because University failed to provide any placements.
There are 3 girls hostel and 4 boys hostel apartments. The hostel was only for the non-native students and because I was a local, I was not qualified to apply or even enter the hostel. Indus University hostel buildings are good and from what I know students enjoy their hostel life at IU. Only vegetarian food is available at the hostel and one can’t even order non-veg food in the hostel. That’s all as I don’t know much about the hostel.
Indus University Campus and infrastructure is good and maybe not a huge but there are all the facilities that one needs. Starting from the library it was so well organized. The books are classified with codes and therefore you can find the book you are looking for in seconds. There are dozens of labs as each department has its own labs. Seems like all were newly built because the architect of the lab was modern. The classrooms had both modern and general blackboard and top-quality projectors installed on the ceiling. The practical room was also inside the classroom to merge the theory and practical session. This was innovative in my eyes. The canteen is always full and there are 2 sections in which the canteen is divided. The staff section is different and around 300 students can take lunch at a time at the canteen. The college has a nice playground with a backdrop of trees. Many University matches and competitions have been held at the IU campus. Then there are 2 seminar halls and one world-class auditorium. The auditorium is small but better than many for sure.
Students of IU generally mind their own business and therefore you will never see students in clusters. Groups of 4-5 students are what you will find at the campus and all in a happy mood. The University also organizes a fest in February/March every year and students are free to participate. A committee is formed that takes care of the event. The students at the University have more power than one can imagine. A single complaint and strict actions were taken immediately be it any issue. Bullying, ragging was like never heard of at the campus. Life at IU was fun as not all mingled with each other but also didn’t have differences among each other.
After a lot of discussion among friends and planning the future right, I took admissions in Indus University, which was a little far off from my place. The University was majorly known for its engineering studies has started the BBA program off late. The University did everything right to explain to us the concept of management studies and the importance of management students in the corporate world. They lacked enough industrial exposure and finally, the placements, which were probably none. Li... Read Full Review
As a resident of Ahmedabad, we have many colleges and universities in our city. Self-financed colleges are mostly under-rated because people think that they charge fees and offer nothing in terms of studies. It’s not the case with Indus University Ahmedabad, as the college was much better than Gujarat University colleges. The kind of projects we were given, the exposure, team bonding that we learned, and how to be compassionate towards others. It was a great experience as the college failed on... Read Full Review
Coming from Rajkot, Ahmedabad was like a competition which both the cities have among themselves. People of Rajkot are seen as competition here, but I made friends quickly as the crowd here was quite friendly. I stayed at my aunt’s place, and the university was 10 miles from there. The travelling was not that easy as Ahmedabad transportation system is poor. Luckily the bus services started as soon as I entered the second year. The university was new when I joined, and things changed drasticall... Read Full Review
The prime reason for me choosing Indus University was that my best friends were enrolling here. Also, from what I heard, students at Indus mostly mind their own business, and college life without friends would have been unimaginable. We all were more or less sure to do an MBA at a later stage, and to start off our management studies, we enrolled in the BBA program. Indus is not that known for BBA, but we still went ahead with it. After successfully passing out I feel, I did the right thing. Ther... Read Full Review
Ahmadabad is known for providing quality education, and Indus University has lived up to the expectation. There are not many courses to choose from for a commerce student, and a few years back, BBA was like a compulsory course if you want to do MBA in the future. This is just for the sake of saying because BBA has not much to do with its namesake daddy course, MBA. Indus University is ever-growing, and after attaining the autonomous status, the college has made sure that it betters itself with e... Read Full Review
